BUYER & CELLAR – THE REVIEWS ARE IN!

“Donald Rees is delightful as Alex More, a Los Angeles actor whose career has failed to launch. His shtick is not cloying, and his comic moves have charm. In fact, he kept the entire audience delighted for long over an hour. In a year screaming with political pieces, this is a gentle, good-humoured, and well written comedy. It fits the most fundamental idea of the Fringe as it entertains. The descriptions of the material excesses of the diva are also àpropos in a world where we have been duly “Trumpified”. There are some great moments between the diva and the employee which are poignantly portrayed, and her constant kvetching is sent up by the hero’s boyfriend…Brave New Productions has been steadily improving over the last fifteen years, and that is worth celebrating. This play was a great fit for them and one wishes them many more years to come. If you are looking for a perfect old-fashioned evening at the Fringe, head down to Theatre Ste Catherine.” – Montreal Rampage

“Delightful performance from Donald Rees as lone clerk in Streisand’s underground mall in [BNP]’s Buyer & Cellar.”Jim Burke, The Montreal Gazette

” I should say right off the bat that I wasn’t expecting much when I went to see Brave New Productions’ Buyer & Cellar at Montreal Fringe. Though the show was a hit at Montreal Pride last year, the whole idea of a one-man show struck me as egotistical and pretentious. I am very happy to say that this play and its star, Donald Rees, proved me wrong. Amidst show tunes and impressions of Streisand that were at once funny and deferential, there was a delicious amount of charm, snark, and humour. You don’t feel like an audience member at this play, but rather someone who is letting a new friend tell their life story. To go further into detail about the show would be to spoil it, and I think that if you love storytelling … you should see this play; it’s delightful.” – ForgetTheBox

“Great show! Very smart, funny and original!!  
Very funny one man show! (The) actor is very versatile, the show is very unique, smart, funny, original … Definitely worth it!” – ATUVU
